  1. Not too crazy about the cover, but I’m looking forward to the DVD regardless. I wish they were doing as Coldplay and including an audio CD of the concert with the DVD.

  3. I looove that cover! that is awesome. makes perfect sense, putting fans on the cover, since it was the fans that lobbied to get it put out on dvd in the first place…i want a big fat poster of that!

  5. that’s a FANTASTIC cover – it symbolises what they whole Slane experience was about!

    I bet there will be no promotion for this, rather like the Unforgettabe Fire video it’s a real ‘fan only’ release.

  7. I wonder if the cover was designed by the same person who worked on the “Solar” cover. hehe. KIDDING! Looks great, and yeah, I wish an audio CD came with it as john mentioned. Either way, can’t wait!!! This is going to be one kickass christmas…U2, Coldplay, Lord Of The Rings, the list goes on and on and on!

  9. It’s gonna be very cool. Can’t wait. I am about “a sort of homecoming” since it was performed at show 1 and isn’t on the dvd. how cool would that have been to have it included.

  11. Can’t wait!
    But it says the entire concert is 106 minutes… isn’t that a bit short? Or are some of the songs snippets?
    Wonder what the bonus track is gonna be.

  15. The 106 minute thing concerns me too. Is this really the entire concert, or have U2 butchered yet another concert video release?

  17. the running time for the dvd is pretty accurate. i was one of the fortunate 80,000 to be there and although it wasn’t one of the longest elevation shows on the tour, it was certainly one of, if not the, best. out of control, kite, stuck, and one, were perhaps the most invigorating and passion-fueled versions on the tour thus far (lest we forget the post-9/11 nyc shows and such). the crowd was probably the best concert crowd i’ve ever witnessed, pumped up by that day’s ireland over holland football win. it was shear madness. and it’s only fitting that the cover be a quasi-tribute to us, the fans. so fear not, ladies and gentlemen, this will be u2’s best release in 10 years (cd, dvd, or otherwise). and i thank them.

    does anyone know what this “unforgettable fire” documentary will be? my guess is it’s that vhs documentary that came out in 1985 and has yet to see the light of day on disc. i wonder.

  19. point taken… but the one i’m talking about is the making of the unforgettable fire album, and it takes place entirely inside slane castle.

  21. I think it makes sense that it is the 1985 documentary, especially to reinforce the bond U2 has with Slane, both the 20 year annivesary of their first performance there, and their use of the castle to record UF.

    I was there too, Slug. If this pans out, I will be fortunate enough to have 2 of the Elevation shows I was at on commercially released DVD. I need to see Slane on video, but emotionally it was right up there with Boston 4 for me.

  23. Man, this is TOO cool!!! For those of us not fortunate enough to ever see U2 in their environment, this will be sooo sweet… I’m thinking it will be the making of the album, UF, because of the Slane connection, but it does seem a little weird still to put on this release… Anyway, KICK ASS!!! (and now, about those Zoo TV/Popmart DVD’s…)…

    This DVD i’ve been waiting for many months!

    I WAS THERE!

    That day i talked with Bono (yes, i’ve met him) about how he should move on stage…I helped him a lot…

    Also, Wake Up Dead Man was my request…

    Viva Bono!

  27. Has anyone noticed that there is no green on the cover. White and Orange are there from the Irish flag but no green. As the text is variably white and orange there seems to be a deliberate choice to exlcude green. I wonder why?

  29. Wasn’t wake up dead man a standard part of the set list during that period? You should have told him to play Boomerang then I would be impressed !:)

  31. johnny m, your posted really disturbed my morning. why on earth would bono have needed anyone to tell him he should sing a song for his father, when he passed on a week before? and you, of all people! wake up dead man was being played a lot in that period… he’s been moving on stage like that for 11 years, and you’re responsible!?! i’m sad.

    anyway, i hope ‘a sort of homecoming’ from the week before is a bonus track.

  33. Slug I love ‘A Sort of Homecoming’ but their performance at Slane was, well, sluggish. I personally doubt they will include it.

  35. The cover is excellent. Anybody that was at either of the Slane gigs will tell you that was all you could see all day between bands. Nice to see a Celtic shirt on the cover too!!!

  37. Lady luck has shined upon me! My friend and I booked a package deal from the UK for the first gig. When the second gig was announced we were told we had no choice but to go to that one. Slightly disappointed at the support acts! And now we get that night on the DVD!!! Result! Quality night.
